PF is abusing ZNBC on a Daily Basis to Parade Fake Defections from UPND

Feature Politics PF is abusing ZNBC on a Daily Basis to Parade Fake Defections...

United Party for National Development (UPND) Deputy Secretary General Patrick Mucheleka has accused the ruling Patriotic Front (PF) of abusing state owned Zambia National Broadcast Corporation (ZNBC) on a daily basis to parade huge numbers of fake defections from UPND.

In a statement released to the media, Mr. Mucheleka said that further accused the ruling party of blocking the opposition from holding meetings while allowing PF members to continue campaigning.

Below is the full statement

Zambians Should Not Be Duped By Pf Bullying And Propaganda Tactics

We have noted a growing trend where the PF are behaving like a boxer who declares they are winning a contest by tying the hands and legs of their opponents in the boxing ring.

We have also noted a heightened PF propaganda machinery abusing state owned Zambia National Broadcast Corporation (ZNBC) where they are daily parading huge numbers of fake defectors from the UPND to join PF. This is an exhibition of desperation, insecurity and lack of confidence for a party that claims so called unprecedented popularity.

And while they are freely holding their mobilisation meetings around the country, our space is being tightened as our members keep on being blocked and arrested by the police for carrying out party activities around the country.

Just yesterday, a lot of our people were arrested in Eastern Province for merely sensitising citizens to verify their voters registration details as demanded by the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ).

Media houses are also getting scared to host our members as PF thugs are attacking radio stations and intimidating media personnel who host opposition political party officials.

Zambians should not be intimidated by allowing the PF to create a more repressive regime than they have already done so far.

It’s not a secret that senior PF leaders are on record of saying they wanted to create a one party state in Zambia.

In fact, had it not been the resilience and strength of the UPND President Hakainde Hichilema and his team, by now PF would have managed to cripple and whip all citizens into accepting a one party dictatorship.

PF have so far created an environment where if one does not support them, they are basically regarded as outcasts who don’t deserve any form of opportunities. To lure the people into submission, they have dished out cash to those who want immediate benefits and financial relief especially with the damaged economy now.

We call on citizens not to be duped and bullied by PF corruption money and propaganda using state institutions such as ZNBC and other private surrogate media outlets

Go and get your money which they have been stealing from you and use it for temporal relief, but let’s all gang up and boot them out for a better economic programme that favours everyone. The water melon strategy must now be in full operation.

  1. “ONLY A T.ONGA MUST LEAD UPND” says Sejani. “IT IS NOW TIME FOR A T.ONGA TO RULE” says Daniel Munkombwe. UPND is a tribal party with an agenda to usher a T.onga president, Zambians watch out for these guys they dont mean well for you. PF for now is the only alternative atleast we have seen that they are trying, the adage says THE DEVIL YOU KNOW IS BETTER THAN THE ANGEL YOU DONT KNOW

  2. KZ the corrupt PF diasporan living in the UK: FOUR more months and it will be Bellmarsh prison (just around the corner from you) to “celebrate” the loss of president Lungu on August 12. If I would be you I would have chosen a different country to live in exile!

  3. Loser, you are cheating yourself. If ZNBC is propagating lies why don’t you give those defectors another platform to deny the stories?

  4. But these UPND chaps, why can’t the supreme leader create his own TV station? after all he claims to be the richest man in Zambia. You have private media, internet etc and the best you can do is come up with such nonsense. UPND needs fresh blood starting from its leader otherwise the end of this party is near. Thank God UNIP is raising at the right time. VOTE UNIP! Power mulilo!

  7. I would agree that PF is using ZNBC to prop up the defections.

    However, the truth is that defections happening in UPND. It appears 3 more MPs will defections soon.

    So if anything, you are the one spinning the truth because you guys seem clueless how to fight PF in an election year.

    PF is not perfect. It has holes where you can punch. But you always focus on irrelevant issues or pick up wrong fights.

    That said, the outcome in August 2021 is looking very predictable for a PF Win.

  8. If you sit around the camp fire and tell each other lies for a very long time, you soon start believing the lies. This is what is happening in the UPND camp. They have been telling themselves that HH will be arrested and poisoned. They have been saying PF will rig the elections, PF will not allow us to campaign now that they are believing there own lies they are fighting ghosts and failing to mobilize as a result. UPND, go out and explain to people your manifesto, if you have it. Tell the people what you will do for them once voted in to power. Forget about PF and tell the people why they should vote for you.

  9. If the defections on ZNBC were real, they were going to be showing to and from. How can they be one sided. Zambians are defecting to the UPND literally every day, go into compounds and see, the propaganda on ZNBC is not sustainable

  10. UPND is not the opposition we need to fight PF. Zambians have to awaken and call for a more educated but callus opposition. That is a fact.

  11. The writing is on the wall. The upndead is dead scared. Mucheleka is lying between his teeth and labouring to tell it like it is.
    Iye uluse!
    Spooky!
    Mulimbe!

  12. @ba Independent Observer, Kci, Balling, all you guys are very funny indeed. How do you fight PF as an opposition party??? Tell me how…. when you a government in place with no LEVEL playing field. You just tell me how. When PF is busy buying votes and bribing people all day long, They are busy campaigning in the bloody name fake name of empowerment. Why empowerment comes only in a election year. You ask yourselves. You have tried time and time again to sideline HH but you have failed. PF can only win by rigging. I hope ubupuba will not take precedence in people’s minds at voting time. Vote for change guys….
